The Anti-Gala Foundation Party 2017

May 23, 2017 | Highlights

The inaugural Anti-Gala was the first charity event of its kind in Singapore. Aiming to subvert the typical charity gala, which often leads to more investments in opulence than the objects of charity, the Anti-Gala is a party like no other.

In its first edition, we raised more than $100,000 through tickets, donations and a silent auction.

The silent auction featured beautiful local works like “Chanting: Rosary 2015” by sculptor Kumari Nahappan. A piece titled “Family” by Singaporean painter ‘Outsider’ (Eric Leong) was successfully auctioned as a donation to the Assumption Pathway School, which caters for special needs students.

Guests were also entertained by music artists we support like Charlie Lim, Linying and Soprano Christina The.
